Sainik School and Military School both are basically for preparing the students for Indian Defence Services. Only difference is that in Sainik Schools some quota is available for civilian wards also. So to that extent the children of non armed forces parents can also apply in Sainik Schools. There are 29 Sainik Schools scattered in different states in our country and a few more are on the anvil. The idea of establishing so many Sainik Schools was to encourage people to enrol in the defence services.
For admissions to Sainik Schools there is all India entrance test known as AISSEE (All India Sainik Schools Entrance Exam) and it is conducted for admission of students for class VI and IX. The age eligibility of boys for class VI is 10 to 12 years while for class IX it is 13 to 15 years. The application and prospectus can be had by paying a registration charge of Rs 400 for General and Defence category while it is only RS 250 for the SC/ST category. The students will have to appear in a written examination followed by interview and medical test.
There is reservation of seats . 25% of the total seats are reserved for the children of defence personnels including ex-servicemen. Out of the remaining seats 2/3rd will be for the boys from the state where the respective Sainik School is located and 1/3rd will be for students from other state. The overall quota of SC and ST candidates is up to 15% and 7-1/2% respectively.
Sainik schools have similar curriculum and are affiliated to CBSE. Some agencies rate these Sainik schools based on various parameters and as per that some of the good ones can be suggested as at - Amaravathinagar, Ghorakhal, Balachadi, Imphal, Purulia, Korukonda and Bhubaneswar.
